PHNOM PENH, Oct. 19 (FN) -- About 137 Cambodian schoolchildren in southern Takeo province have become sick after eating tainted food distributed by a local volunteer group, a police officer confirmed on Wednesday.

Sok Sochea, deputy police chief of Tram Kak district, where the incident occurred, said the children fell ill on Tuesday afternoon, about four hours after they ate fried rice with egg, corn and sausage and drank milk and fresh water.

"They all have the same symptoms: vomiting and diarrhea," he told Xinhua, adding that they had been rushed to hospitals soon after the incident.

He said sample of the tainted fried rice was sent to the provincial food safety bureau for an examination.

It seems that the children were accidentally poisoned by business school students during a charity event - sad irony.

More than 100 kids fall ill after event at school

Five of 137 Ta Tai Primary School students in Takeo’s Tram Kak district yesterday remained hospitalised, and in serious condition, after eating what is believed to have been tainted food they received during a charity event organised by 11 students at a Phnom Penh business school on Tuesday, according to a health official...

Sam Sokuntheary, a deputy principal of CamEd Business School, where the event’s organisers study, said the school was not responsible as it was a student-organised event. Regardless, the school will provide $35 to each student who became ill, he said.

Sounds like reheated rice to me, no fatalities just puking and shitting. Sits around all day, all hot and sweaty, with occasional visits to the cooker

There are over 250 diseases associated with shitty food. Poor Cambodians.
